Assessment of dyslexia is a specialty service that requires assessing the child’s intellectual and academic achievement functioning, as well as specific skills, like decoding, auditory processing, phonological processing, rapid retrieval of previously learned information, and other necessary reading skills. Dyslexia can be broken up into subtypes, Phonetic Dyslexia and Orthographic Dyslexia. While most individuals have both, sometimes only one is present. The evaluation is aimed at helping to identify why a child is struggling with reading development and the specific subtypes of dyslexia. Once we identify this information, we can provide specific and targeted recommendations for remediation.
